“As parents of three dancers at the Dee Buchanan Studio of Dance we can’t say enough about the studio. The teachers and staff at the studio are supportive, caring and nurturing. Their influence on the kids is significant considering the amount of time they spend together each week! The teachers encourage respect, dedication and commitment to the art while at the same time communicate a joy and love of dance that brings fun to the whole experience. We also appreciate the involvement in the community that the studio offers our children. It is nice to see dance being shared as both a form of service as well as entertainment. Most importantly we have been very happy with the level of instruction and the philosophy at the Dee Buchanan Studio of Dance. The supportive and positive atmosphere reinforces the values we all strive to instill in our kids at home.”

“ Being a part of the dance studio for 10 years now, my girls have learned not only how to dance with style and grace but have formed wonderful friendships and have achieved self-confidence, ambition and responsibility.”
“Recently I had the opportunity to attend another dance studio’s recital. It was a nice show but I noticed a common thread of no technique in all of the dances. I looked in the program for the teacher biographies and saw that all of the teachers had no training or certifications from any dance association.
All of the teachers at the Dee Buchanan Studio of Dance have Dance Masters of America and Cecchetti Council of America certifications. They all continue to take dance workshops and master classes to improve their teaching skills. Miss Dee is always on the look-out for workshops, classes,theater productions and other opportunities for the kids to experience.
It is wonderful to know that your child is receiving such outstanding training and proper technique in a nurturing environment.
My daughter is gaining skills that will last a lifetime. The poise, confidence,interview skills, stage presence,adaptability and teamwork will definitely be useful in school and her future carear.
It’s been 8 great years and we can’t wait to see what the next 6 will bring!”
“Looking forward to beginning our ninth year at the Dee Buchanan Studio of Dance. Each year continues to bring amazing growth in our three dancers.”

“We started dancing when my eldest daughter was four years old and think the teachers and staff are amazing. The classes are not only fun but also help teach my daughters responsibility, caring for themselves and staying fit, and helps them build lasting friendships. The teachers and apprentices at the studio are very patient and kind with their students. They truly want them to learn their dance techniques and have fun doing so. I have watched my daughters grow up and mature during their years taking classes at Dee Buchanan Studio of Dance. They started with the Toddler Time classes and have now started going to competitions with the company. The Liturgical dance is one of my favorites to watch. To see all the dancers at Christmas in the Valley dancing in Zion Lutheran Church is very moving.”

“When our family moved to Middletown in 2002, we could tell that there was a strong sense of community in the Valley. This feeling has been reinforced through our involvement with the Dee Buchanan Studio of Dance. The teachers and staff at the studio make the kids feel like they are part of a special, close-knit group. My daughters have grown in their skill and confidence with each new class, Nutcracker performance and recital. Not ony are they learning different types of dance and keeping in shape, but they are acquiring the confidence to face an audience of their community and peers. I believe this is an invaluable trait that they will utilize in many facets of their lives, both personally and professionally. My daughters enjoy a variety of activities, but dancing has truly become their passion.
